Featured Photographer: Ian Mills

7 July 2014

Gerringong Australia Photography is a small local business on the Illawarra South Coast featuring the award winning photography of Ian Mills who specialises in the stunning scenery in the many photogenic locations surrounding Gerringong. Special focus is given to the stunning sunsets over land and water, including photos of the stars and moon from the areas relatively light pollution free skies. Our works adorn the walls of Gerringong/Gerroa locals and visitors to the area who want to take home a memory of this spectacular location.

“As I started my photography journey in the 70’s using film I had to learn the basic fundamentals so that every press of the shutter button would result in a “keeper” – I continue that principle using today’s digital cameras. I run Photography Training courses on the special techniques needed for Astro-photography and sunsets/sunrises, and the Photoshop/Lightroom/HDR post processing techniques which are the modern version of developing film in a darkroom.”
